“Then he said, ‘I beg you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house, for I have five brothers, that he may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.’ Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.’ And he said, ‘No, father Abraham; but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’ But he said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rise from the dead.’ ”(Luke 16:27-31) NKJV
The featured image is what mainstream science (SciPop) wants you to think the interior of the Earth looks like. SciPop doesn’t want you to lie in bed at night worried about hell. SciPop is your friend. Good old SciPop.
However, first we have to have a clear idea of what we actually know about the interior of the Earth. We can’t see the interior, but we need to know what SciPop thinks it knows, and how it knows it. The deepest hole ever drilled is the Kola Super-deep Bore-hole which is 12 km deep. That’s less than 2% of the radius of the Earth. So how does SciPop derive the current model?
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
Seismological data is used to construct the SciPop model. It comes from earthquakes or large explosions. When earthquakes occur shock waves travel through the Earth and are detected at many places around the surface. Two types of waves are produced that propagate in different ways: P-waves and S-waves. P-waves are sound waves that can propagate through anything, solid, liquid or gas. S-waves are lateral waves and can only propagate through solid matter.
The data shows us that there are zones of different density, but not what the zones are made of. Gravitational methods are used to calculate the mass of the Earth and it’s average density, then the information from seismology is superimposed onto it. The gravitational method is based on flawed reasoning and so the entire theory is an inductive rationalization of evidence to fit the premise that there’s no hell.
This image shows that P-waves and S-waves from the same earthquake may be detected at different places on the earth’s surface.
You will notice a network of curved lines that appear to indicate the path of P- and S-waves through the earth.
Why are the lines curved? It’s theoretical (imaginary) which means there’s a problem with the popular science (SciPop) model.
Faith is believing in something that you can’t see, because of evidence.– Faith, definition
Here’s a quote from Journeys to the Center of the Earth by Tim Folger for Discover Magazine, about the development of the current theory of the internal structure of the Earth.
The first hint that Earth actually had a solid iron core beneath a liquid layer came in 1929, after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake shook New Zealand. Such large temblors provide a wealth of data, and researchers around the world pored over seismograph recordings in the quake’s aftermath. But only one scientist noticed anything unusual. Inge Lehmann, a Danish seismologist, made meticulous notes on seismic activity, including the arrival time of P-waves, at various seismographic stations. (Lehmann kept her notes on cards that she stored in empty oatmeal boxes.) She found P-waves in what should have been P-wave shadow zones. If Earth’s core were completely liquid, P-waves should have been deflected away from the shadow zones. In a paper published in 1936, she argued that the anomalous P-waves must have been deflected from some denser structure within the liquid core, sending them on trajectories into the shadow zones. Lehmann concluded that Earth must have a solid inner core. It wasn’t until 1970 that instruments became sensitive enough to prove beyond a doubt that she was right. Lehmann, who published her last scientific paper when she was 98, died in 1993 at the age of 104.– Tim Folger, Journeys to the Center of the Earth
Here’s the thing: SciPop wants you to think that there’s no hell, but SciPop can’t make hell go away or save you from it. Unfortunately the seismological data doesn’t give us enough information to be able to draw their desired conclusion. That means it’s not a conclusion, it’s an inductive rationalization of a premise.
If we go back to our basic understanding of what SciPop is: a rationalization of godless existence, then we know that the output from SciPop is required to exclude any possibility that the Bible could be true. However the Bible refers to hell deep inside the Earth and a great gulf of open space between it and the lower mantle. The decision to regard the area between the core and mantle as liquid was arbitrary., and driven by a godless agenda
Understand this: The Lehmann sheol discontinuity is in the data, but Ms. Lehmann didn’t want there to be a hell so she chose to believe that it’s not there. The data goes either way.
